So I have had my KFA2 980ti black pre o/c with another 10% headroom for a while now but now we are getting into the warmer months, the card is running a little too hot for my liking @ 84c ambient 20c downclocked to stock and i'm looking at both the EK-FC Titan X copper block or the XSPC Razor GTX 980 Ti.
The argument I'm having with myself is the EK titan X has better cooling on the vram part on paper but the the XSPC one has better cpu cooling but which would be better for the card ?

Imo when your talking about water cooling the actual GPU itself most blocks are probably pretty close to each, however I have never seen any reviews comparing GPU blocks, (but I'm sure they're out there somewhere). Water cooling the VRM's can make a big difference in overall system temps, and this is why full cover blocks are usually highly coveted by water coolers. I think anyone that's used full cover blocks would say to always go that route if you can.

After much debating with myself lol, this is the conclusion I came to aswell in the end, the titan X had much better cooling on the vrm and in theory is better for the card in the long run..

Shame I made the purchase earlier this morning or I would have taken you up on the offer but thanks anyway.
